I've been lurking for awhile, trying to put it all together to become TF. So far I found a source for raw milk and I think I may have just found a place to get eggs. I need meatless ideas because I haven't put it all together yet to find a meat source. Anyway, I don't have much time or energy to make long recipes, just looking for simple things I can throw together for a healthy meal. So far I was thinking of stuff like fried egg on toasted sourdough bread and maybe egg salad sandwiches if I can experiement with making my own mayo. Any more ideas? Maybe something with veggies?<br>

I make a lot of whole grain pastas with a veggie-heavy tomato sauce.<br><br>
Crustless quiche can be great. A few fave combo's are broccoli/cheddar, spinach/fontina.<br><br>
fritattas are great and I have used sweet potatoes in place of regular with great success.<br><br>
Veggies stir frys are quick and easy too!

Beans take a little planning, but with a crockpot, they are pretty effortless. You soak for 1-3 days, then cook... When they are the right texture, then add salt. Then I fry onions and add the oil and onions right before serving.<br><br>
From leftover beans, we do "chili beans" with tons of chili powder and cumin, then I add a little kefir or sour cream to thicken. Garnish with cheese - serve with tortillas (or taco shells or chips).<br><br>
You are definitely on the right track with the eggs - we seem to be eating a LOT of eggs lately - egg in a hole is one of our favorites...<br><br>
These ladies here are always posting delicious ideas.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:<br><br>
Sourdough "pizzas" - bread toasted, then add toppings and cheese...<br>
Sourdough grilled cheese served with tomato soup.<br><br>
aaagh - there is more but I am drawing a blank.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

I keep a version of refried beans (no frying, I just use the crockpot--onions, cumin, bacon, I can't remember what other seasonings, my brain is mush) in the freezer and just defrost and serve with corn tortillas and fermented salsa (and some steamed broccoli or something if I'm organized enough). They're slow to make, but a whole crockpot full of beans makes lots of dinners, so it's both economical and convenient.

I like to make a large pot of beans and rice. It takes some time the first night but it's super simple to reheat. I cook rice and beans in beef broth then throw in sauteed onions and bell pepper. I mix them together with fire roasted canned diced tomatoes and add whatever seasonings I want. Tonight I just added garlic powder and it was really really good. Tonight I also tried freezing some for the first time. Hopefully it'll taste as good next week as it did tonight. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:
